England

I just got back from an incredible trip to England. Some of you may know my obsession with seeing the English countryside. Well, I got plenty of it. My riding instructor, a few fellow students, and I ventured to New Market and then the Yorkshire Riding Centre (in northern Yorkshire) for ten days. We spent most of it riding horses and doing good old-fashioned tourism. By the end of the trip, none of us wanted to leave and we decided we'd be back, possibly as soon as next year.

I've spent a week compiling all the photos and video clips from the trip in the Photos section. Unfortunately, my camera's lense is very slow and couldn't capture sharp images inside the riding arena. As a result, you'll have to wait until I get my fellow student's pictures from her camera for the horseback riding action shots.

Since my upload speed is capped at 256Kb, the pictures and especially videos will take a while to download, so please be patient. I've supplied compressed versions of each video to ease browsing. The full size versions are far superior, so if you see a video you like, spend the time and download the big file.

If you'd like a CD of all pictures and videos, please let me know and I'll happily make one for you. If you have pictures to contribute, I'd also love those as well.

Anyways, enough of the yammering. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy!
